The game of Monopoly is a classic in most families. I have many fond memories (some recent) of long games of Monopoly with friends and family members. Most people have a favorite token and for me, that's the Scottie Dog. He is the game piece that I must have. Turns out he is up for retirement, along with some other pieces, and needs to be saved!
Game of Monopoly – Save Your Token!
One token will be retired soon… for good, and it's up to us all to vote for which one that will be. There are eight classic tokens on the chopping block… the battleship, iron, racecar, Scottie dog, shoe, thimble, top hat, or wheelbarrow.
Looking to take their place: the diamond ring, guitar, toy robot, cat, and helicopter.
This is a pretty epic decision in the game world and you can be a part of it. Cast your vote to save your favorite over on the Monopoly Facebook page. You can also tweet about the vote, using hashtag #tokenvote. There is a leader board to check to see how your token is doing. Looks like the doggie will be saved so far!
I voted to save the Scottie Dog and bring in the Diamond Ring. How will you vote? HURRY because voting ends on 2/5/13!
We recently played Monopoly at Mike's family Thanksgiving gathering. Turns out my husband is a dirty cheater. He had all sorts of tricks up his sleeve. But, with my ruthless investing techniques, I ended up squashing him in the end. Monopoly is not only a blast, but it is also very educational. It can teach children how to manage their money and how to invest wisely. Hopefully it will unleash your child's inner-real-estate tycoon!
